El baño is more for a bathroom in a person's house. Los servicios is the term more proper for a public bathroom.

Vámonos para el baño que nadie nos está viendo - Let's go to the bathroom so nobody sees us
Si no me conoces, nos vamos conociendo - If you don't know me, we will get to know each other
Sé que suena loco pero me gusta tanto - I know it seems crazy, but I like it so much
Estar un día más así, yo no lo aguanto - Being like that for one more day, I can't stand it

If el baño is Spanish for bathroom, what is the word for toilet?

All good! I just found out it can be el inodoro or el retrete or el servicio or el lavabo. All better than the USA-inspired PC 'bathroom'.

Yessssss that's what I thought about! You love Enrique? He's my King, I adore him and I'm seeing him on November 6th in Sofia, Bulgaria (my country) and that's why my profile picture is the Bulgarian flag in front of a photo of one of Enrique Iglesias' concerts in Bulgaria. <3 <3 <3

Did you actually write "the bathroom, the restroom"? You should decide on one of these words. There is only one "el baño" in the prompt.

Interesting, that Russian has a word "баня" (read as: baña), which literally means "bath house", a Sauna of sorts, only somewhere between Finnish and Turkish Saunas. Guess it could come from Spanish "baño", along with the extremely versatile grammar.

The English Wiktionary is always a pretty good source for etymology questions. The Russian "баня" is a borrowing from the Latin "balneum", from which the Spanish baño also descended. Apparently these words developed in a very similar manner.

A room qualifies as baño if it has "a sink, a shower, a bath tub, a toilet, or other sanitary equipment". Anything goes, basically. (Sourced from the RAE, need to scroll down to "cuarto de baño".)

If you just want a toilet room, you can call it "(cuarto de) aseo" or "(cuarto de) lavabo", most commonly.

The football player? I am not sure what "CR" is supposed to stand for. It's not a common nor recognised abbreviation for a toilet or bathroom.

Ah, alright. I guess it's just local, then. I've never heard an English speaker call it "comfort room". But you may try and report it. :)
